After not having thrown a pitch in the big leagues in more than two years, Chan Ho Park has retired.The 39-year-old made it official Thursday during a press conference in Seoul, South Korea following one season with the Korean Baseball Organization's Hanwha Eagles.According to Korea JoongAng Daily, Park helped pack stadiums for the last place Eagles, but finished the season "mediocre at best".  The one-time Major League All-Star was 5-10 with a 5.06 ERA...a far cry from his career here in the States.During his 17 years in the Majors, the righty compiled a 124-98 record (the most wins among Asian born pitchers) and a 4.36 ERA.  From 1997 to 2001, Park rattled off five consecutive years with more than 13 victories for the Los Angeles Dodgers.Next for Park?  Perhaps he can get back to his rap career!  Move over, Psy.
